The challenges in repairing our roads
Challenges to keeping county and township roads in good repair is the subject of a free, open to the public program scheduled for 3-5 pm Saturday, June 1, at the Yuba Community Center.
Issues related to current and future maintenance of county and township roads particularly those in Richland County supervisory districts 1, 2, and 3 will be the focus.
A background on road financing will be provided by Buford Marshall, the Richland County District 21 supervisor who has worked closely with the Richland County Highway commissioner.
Jeanetta Kirkpatrick, Richland County Board chair and the District 1 supervisor, will address the overall budget and sources of income related to township roads. Shaun Murphy-Lopez, supervisor from District 2 and a new member of the board, will comment on private experience in the transportation business.
In addition, Village of Yuba President Jim Huffman, and supervisor from District 3 for Richland County, will speak about the challenges and possibilities when seeking out funding sources for road repair. Huffman is a former chair of the Roads Committee and a longtime member of the board.
Following the presentations, there will be an open discussion for the public to share their questions and concerns.
Forums for other Supervisory Districts are currently being planned. For more information, contact organizer Lee Van Landuyt by email at email@example.com or by phone 608-604-2007.
